The handbook is intended for commanders of military units (battalions and companies) whose troops are involved in or about to embark on law enforcement operations where domestic law and international human rights law apply. It explains in some detail how such laws may affect the conduct of operations and highlights ways in which the harm which might result from such operations can be reduced. The document references key ‘soft law’ documents such as Basic Provisions on the Use of Force and Firearms (BPUFF) and the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials (CCLEO) and include sufficient information to stand alone. This handbook is a ‘must’ for military commanders operating in a law enforcement situation.
